Horrors are a race of horned monsters that come in various descriptions. The Horrors run a horror themed amusement park called HorrorLand. They torture humans by the rides at the park telling them that "someone died on this ride," "it might be your last," and other various phrases. After a day of working, they like to lay back in their rooms in the Stagger Inn and watching their favorite shows.
In Welcome to HorrorLand: A Survival Guide, it is revealed that Horrors weren't really "born" to "parents." Instead, they crawled out of a radioactive slime puddle that was cursed by a witch.

One Day at HorrorLand
The Horrors first appear in One Day at HorrorLand, where they are the employees of the park HorrorLand. When the Morris family and Clay come to visit HorrorLand, they are received by an Horror who apologize for the explosion of their car, offer them free entrance and inform them they have no phones. The Morris parents go to find a car while Clay and the Morris children, Luke and Lizzy, go explore the park.
Their first ride is the Deadly Doom Slide, where an Horror warn them about the Doom Slide, a never-ending slide. Lizzy chooses the third slide, Luke the second one and Clay the tenth and last one. Luke and Lizzy reach the bottom without problem, but Clay is nowhere to be found, and one of the Horrors says he might have taken the Doom Slide. Therefore, the Morris children decide to both take the tenth slide.
Return to HorrorLand
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween
Despite not appearing in the film Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, the tie-in book Slappy's Return reveals that a Goosebumps-themed Halloween mask of a HorrorLand Horror was one of the costumes brought to life by Slappy.
The HorrorLand Horrors have been described in a variety of ways with horns on their heads similar to horned animals.
- In One Day at HorrorLand, the Horrors are light green with purple tails.
- In Return to HorrorLand, they are purple and green.
- In Goosebumps HorrorLand, they are dark green.
- In the television episode, they wear tattered versions of human clothing, but are fully clothed.
- In the video game, male Horrors usually only wear a shirt or go completely naked. The females were clothing the equivalent of bikinis. When the player uses the mask to turn into a Horror, regardless of gender, they are naked; their clothing returns when they are returned to human form. However, the mask may have grown over their body (the mask was magic after all), covering their human body and clothing. Horrors love hurting humans, so that is why the MP (monster police) carry clubs and why the other Horrors always poke the humans with their bellies.

Television and film
In Return to HorrorLand, they have a dental game, where they drill through the teeth of humans. They have high intelligence, because HorrorLand is themed about the monster's inventions and things hinting they may be more intellectual than one might have thought, considering they have advanced technology. They also have found a way to get pinching outlawed in HorrorLand, since pinching is deadly for them. At the Miss Information booth in the video game, she says that all the rides are safe, but they actually aren't.
